We’ll finish with discussions of habituation, motivation, supportive nutrition, hydration and injury prevention.


    Day 3: A run/walk session starts the day. Afterward, we’ll talk about races and athletic conditioning. We’ll work through training plans, help you set goals and connect you with your training group. You’ll have everything you need to make the next few months successful.
